I have a question I think I have the parking brake set on. If I am trying to replace the inner tie rod would this cause the tie rod not to come off. It is a Front Wheel Drive 1992 Cadillac Deville.

Do you
have the same problem?

The parking brake has absolutely nothing to do with steering or tie rod. Probably the jamb nut is seized

Is their a way to get it out I used vice grips and a plumbers wrench on that big gray ball and could not get it to budge. I know they make an inner tie rod tool to get it off. I want to make that my last resort.
